Re: What sailing knife do you use?
I've had a Buck 315 for the past 25 years or so. I see many good options above, but I can't understand to knives without a marlinspike. I definitely need the spike more often than the blade. The blade is usually a secondary choice made when I need to give up on a better option!
I, on the other hand, have been messing about in boats for 11 years now and never even knew that the marlinspike was for undoing seized knots. I thought it was for splicing, which seemed strange to me. Who needs to splice in a hurry....
Now that I know the spike is for getting stuck knots un-stuck I now want one at the ready at all times. Man have I been missing out.....
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
